SQL2012 AlwaysOn Availability Groups

Postby vanderetto » Mon Sep 09, 2013 8:30 am


Does anyone know if there are any plans to be able to use a replica server within SQL Backup anytime soon?

Or, has anyone actually managed to get SQL Backup installed on an Availability Group at all?

SQL Backup Pro can be installed on SQL Server instances included in AlwaysOn Availability Groups (introduced in SQL Server 2012), but does not support the features of Availability Groups. SQL Backup Pro must be installed on each SQL Server instance separately; you cannot use the cluster installation. In the event of a failover, any scheduled jobs from the failed server must be created manually on the new primary server.

See Technical notes on the requirements page.
